Stangs dominate Golden Eagles in victory

LMC wins in convincing fashion

The Los Medanos Mustangs women’s soccer team battled the Feather River Golden Eagles on Sept. 12 and had an easy time scoring in a 6-1 victory. They gained momentum going into some tough opponents in the coming weeks.

The game started off fast for the Mustangs as Nathalie Farias would receive assists from Issabella Burton and Zuleyka Berumen to score the first goal two minutes into the game.

The game then turned into a defensive showing as neither team could create chances to either tie the game or get a bigger lead until the 33rd minute into the game when Golden Eagle player Selah Draper would score the only goal scored by Feather River on an assist by Audrey Garland.

That was their one and only shot on net as they were kept out of their offensive zone due to some amazing defense by the Stangs. Defense has been the major key for the Stangs this season so far.

As the game went to halftime, the score was a 1-1 tie, seemingly staying a competitive game.

However, when the second half started, the Mustangs pulled away with the victory quickly with two goals by Burton and Briana Garcia within six minutes into the second half giving LMC a 3-1 lead.

The game looked over from there as the Golden Eagles couldn’t answer back with any offense. Maliah Alicea was the goalie for the Stangs and she didn’t seem to have any troubles due to the ball almost always being in the Stangs offensive zone.

In the 58th minute of the game, Garcia would score again for the Stangs giving LMC a 4-1 lead. 12 minutes later, Emily Jimenez would join in on the scoring barrage extending their lead to 5-1. 

The Golden Eagles looked gassed on defense as LMC kept the pressure on. The final goal of the game came within the final two minutes of the game when Brenda Ramirez would score the ball past Kaydence Morrow, the Golden Eagles goalkeeper.

It was a wild game that LMC showcased their offensive dominance against a sub-par team in Feather River.

The game was in the Stangs favor for most of the game, especially the second half. The second half was a domination by the Stangs over Feather River as the Golden Eagles stayed without a win this season as of Sept. 13. The Stangs overall record goes to 2-1-2 at the top of the Bay Valley Conference.

This game was over in the second half and the offense looked really good as they moved onto their next game against a tough opponent in Cosumnes River who is 3-1-1 overall.

The women’s soccer team’s next home game will be on Tuesday, Sept. 19 against Las Positas at 2 p.m.
